were in virginia where unemployment is lower, but a lot of that is due to government spending, and now we're in ohio where as you know, in youngston, that plant that was almost shut down, three shifts making the chevy crews. the toledo plant, they associate this with jobs and prosperity, and the auto industry and the other manufacturing industries, what you have is generations of people working in those industries so the trend does actually matter, and the trend favors president obama right now. >> so john, you close it up for me. ohio. you guys are there. it is so important. i mean, people in ohio must feel like the belle of the ball. everybody wants their vote. they have spent so much advertising money. >> they know it. >> if romney loses ohio, john, can he win the election? >> the path is very, very, very difficult without ohio, and that's why the obama camp has made it a fire wall, which is the reversal of political trends in the past. usually ohio is the republican firewall in the election. a couple things, the fact that ohio use unemployment rate is lower than the nation's, very
. >> the federal government will not quit until this is done. >> thank you fema fema is about to run out with money. >> 88 hours in ohio. >> president obama on the ground in ohio vernlg the center of the political universe right now. >> right here in ohio. >> you know that i'll fight for you and your families. >> it is all about ohio. >> do you want more of the same or do you want real change? >> and governor romney will be in aetna, ohio. >> this is about eric mac. >> the salesman versus the storm. >> we're going to win on tuesday night. >> all the battlegrounds look winnable for the president. >> we're really down to the last seven states. >> it is still all about the economy. >> we've made real progress. >> you've got this jobs report, the unemployment report. >> definitely a strong jobs report. >> stronger than expected. >> that's good. >> unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> he is about as hollow as the tin man. >> if we don't run candy crowley, romney will be the nominee and he'll lose. >>> we begin tonight with the latest on the recovery from the devastation of
government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> when there is a disaster, there's an appropriate federal role, and we will find the monies, but we've had discussions about these things before and those monies will be offset with appropriate savings or cost cutting elsewhere. >> president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the ocean oceans. not familiar with precisely with exactly what i said but i stand by what i said whatever it was. ♪ >> good afternoon from new york where a monster storm is bearing down on the city and the entire eastern seaboard is due to make landfall as soon as an hour from now south of atlantic city, new jersey. at this hour just one example of the hazards brought by this storm, a partially collapsed crane is hanging over the streets of midtown manhattan. 57th street and 6th avenue, just a few blocks from here at rockefeller center. a volatile situation with winds just starting to reach hurricane level. this storm has already left at le
not tolerate a republican governor saying i am not going to accept money from the federal government to help get the lights back on. we will suffer through this as a state. >> right. >> and eschew any help, people wouldn't stand for it. but they will stand for it when the help is about something a little less immediate. if a republican governor said we're turning down this money to fix our schools or unemployment. >> or to build high speed rail. >> or high speed rail. >> internet. >> when the republican governor turns that money down, people don't see the immediate consequences and they don't seem to react. but imagine what they would do if chris christie had stood up and said we're not taking obama's help on this? >> i think it's two things. i think that it's absolutely christie actually being who he is. i don't think that whole idea that he was being totally phony is fair. but i also think that christie has been the attack dog for president obama specifically and so he's kind of effusive praise seemed really shocking on the one hand but i think truth has been such a casualty when it comes
as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virgini
words, they funded the government until the spring at which point they're going to try to come back and do something about it. the president's proposal, his budget proposal, which as everybody knows has not been enacted for a 3% cut to fema, including disaster relief funds. the republican proposal, the nearest thing to it, would pass the house of representatives as represented by paul ryan, the chairman of the budget committee, would have across-the-board cuts of about 22% and presumably we don't know for sure, that would include fema. but again, all of the kind of ambiguous at this point, all of it up in the air. they're going to have to come back after the election in a lame-duck session anyway, try to figure out what to do about that fiscal cliff. they would probably fund fema in the interim. republicans are going to insist that any funding of fema over and above what is planned is offset with cuts elsewhere. so basically, we could be looking at the same old story here, steve. >> hey, mike, it's krystal. we know the president's back on the campaign trail, but he and his administr
the federal government and fema and the bureaucracy i think it's daunting. people are worried it's going to be red tape and programs that are not going to essentially solve their needs in the short term. you know, the short-term needs people have here is basically to get the debris away from their homes to secure structures to make it safer. there are still thousands of people in shelters who are going to be running out of food and supplies and those kinds of places up and down the coast and further inland. power, of course, is out to 60% of the entire state. so before -- once you get those things re-established, then you can begin to start rebuilding and really getting your foot -- your feet back on the ground here. it's going to take a while. i think people are encouraged that the president is coming. it certainly shows that he's concerned about what's happened here. but as always, i think there are going to be a lot of doubts and frustrations in terms of what exactly is going to happen here soon because it's going to take a while. obviously it's going to take a while. andrea? >> ron a
been bottlenecked. >> earlier today the federal government waived a allow that prevents foreign ships from carrying fuel between u.s. ports. that should help. but the white house said there is been no decision whether to release oil from strategic reserves. johnathan hunt is live bay bridge, brooklyn tonight. if the tankers are on the way, how long until the fuel gets to the people who need? >> it's still going to be some time. whatever officials say about the help being on the way. the problem here is that new york harbor where i'm standing right now has been closed for the very good reason that they were very worried about the sort of debris that might be in the waters and might pose a threat to the shipping. but now you have the tankers that are waiting outside the harbor. first of all, you have to get the barges to them, then you have to go through the long process of pumping all the gas and oil from the tankers to the barges. then they have to get back in here to the terminals. but nonetheless, governor cuomo of new york said nobody panic, help is coming. listen. >> there is no r
create a perfect storm for stocks. we're going to explain that. >>> does our government now need a secretary of business? president obama thinks so. what about the business community? we're going to get reaction straight from business owners mouths. even when they say it's not, even in this storm, it's always about money melissa: so, starting off tonight, no doubt hurricane sandy will cost a lot of money. it is still going strong, headed right for western new york. let us get the latest on the path from weather.com meteorologist. bernie, what is it getting ready to hit now? >> it is off to the east of pittsburgh. as you mentioned melissa, it is moving northward, when you take a look at storm, look how large it is. it is covering the eastern half of the united states. there is moisture feeding in on the earn end of it from the tropics. that is why we still have so much rain talking about. heaviest rain thankfully east of i-95 corridor through western pennsylvania and back to northwest indiana with this rain. we're not seeing the devastating rain we saw yesterday. pockets of heavy
be replaced. >> and he's right. it can be replaced if we understand that government has a role in our lives. government has to be the key factor in helping that effort, that recovery effort. >> let's talk about that effort. let me go to david connorn. it seems to me that fema, there was a judgment made way back when in the '70s that government needs to be united. one focus by one man or woman, this guy, fugate's got to be good. you need like a baseball team, you need a manager, somebody to call the shots. >> and we see with more extreme weather happening in the last few years, it's more necessary to have a national, federalized approach, particularly in the planning and in the research, and tracking storms. that can't be done by 50 different states. i thought the president today was very smart when he spoke up in new jersey with governor christie. he thanked the congressional delegate for voting for fema funds. something that, of course, mitt romney -- >> well, anybody -- here's where it happens. the president this morning toured that devastation down in jersey with governor chris christie.
't want functions government? >> he doesn't live in new jersey or new york. >> he doesn't care that people have lost their lives? >> he doesn't care, no. >> really? >> it's of no consequence to him. i'm not saying that the loss of life is of no consequence to him, but the needs of new jersey and new york at this point are of no consequence to him, otherwise he would say, well, you know, it's nice to see them working together. but he's so determined to, you know, help romney win this election that he actually engaged in -- maybe he was joking -- but a little bit of gay baiting if you listen to the full broadcast today where, you know, he said this was man loving man and going heavily with the love metaphors between the two politicians. but, you know, the larger impression here is one of bipartisanship which is extraordinarily important because a lot of voters, they are concerned that the president has not been more successful with republicans. and the addition of mike bloomberg and then earlier in the week colin powell, a moderate republican, that's a trifecta, bloomberg, christie, powell.
. there is no electricity and you talk about the pressure from the people of staten island to get government officials to listen to them. that pressure actually brought janet napolitano, secretary of national security, to the island today. here's what she said. >> we knew that staten island took a hard hit from hurricane sandy. so we want to make sure that the right resources are brought here as quickly as possible to help this community, which is so strong, recover more quickly. >> i can tell you that it's bitter cold. they have no electricity. one of the complaints is that all emphasis is on manhattan. i have a friend who's camped out in lower manhattan. they have no electricity in lower manhattan. con ed is making that emphasis to make electricity be restored. all you see is the trucks can get stuff out now that they have showed up. you don't see the utility company putting the electricity on. it is being restored in other parts. but the area hardest hit is still waiting. neil: what is remarkable is that a lot of local officials, the republican governor, a democratic president, each congratulating
their power so. melissa: maybe it is something we have to commit to? utilities are regulated by the government and they're told how much they can charge their customers. they don't necessarily have the room for this kind of expense. maybe that is the problem with having regulated businesses. maybe we all have to suck it up as a community and pay the assessment and put these power lines underground? >> you know, really depends geographically i think. each individual community has to take that cost benefit analysis. if storm damage is something that, you know, people are paying a lot for, it may be a idea but there's, other problems with burying them underground. where, you know, they're harder to get to. so when you have some sort of issue like a tree root breaking a line or flooding taking out power, it is can be harder to fix. can take longer to fix. again there is tradeoffs for both systems. melissa: but empirically, power has to go down a lot less frequently when it is underground. have you studied frequency? seems completely predictable. a storm whips through new york state. you know exact
to go to the federal government for help. they can go to sba,. they actually can call our company. we are assisting businesses. they can call us. we will work with them to bring in the government agencies so that they can get financial assistance if they qualify for it. gerri: and you can do it yourself. you don't have to have an intermediary, although you can choose to. there is tax relief, how so? >> that is a question. in terms of tax relief, there are questions as to whether the legislators were going to reach out and provide tax benefits for businesses that have been affected by the disaster. historically we have not seen that, but it is being discussed. gerri: free legal services to be available from fema. is that typical? >> it is. the federal government reaches out and tries to do what i can't help small businesses. that is available from the government, where you can get those types of services. gerri: the cdc will have some clean-up tips. is that on their website. >> absolutely. you can go to cdc and get those helpful tips as well. gerri: i know people tonight are sitting at
, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if there's a thought in your mind whether the timing of the change in topic. >> well, i mean, obviously the changing of the subject that everybody doesn't have on their mind the economy and jobs, obama's policies or the failed results of those policies, instead. rightly americans are concerned about our friends in north carolina or new hampshire and everywhere in between. it's good for obama. it's not goin necessarily goingo turn the world upside down, but as i say, any day that obama's record is not in front of the american people is a relief for obama. >> greta: does it help? i don't know if you've seen the words of governor chr
of government spending. where is the recovery? "fox & friends" begins now. it's ominous morning this morning as we begin to see what sandy does on the east coast. tropical storm the. >> the cold front coming from the west one monster slow moving storm so its effects can be felt for a few days. has sites set on the united states. rick reichmuth has been following sandy's path. so i get, rick, that's good news. others say it can be worse than irene. >> don't pay attention to it being downgraded. it doesn't mean anything. it's not really completely a tropical storm. it's going to be transitioning to what we kind of consider a nor'easter. we are accustomed to nor'easters. that kind of a event. moisture associated with a tropical storm. tropical storm holds a lot more water in the atmosphere as it transitions. that water is still going to be there radar picture showing the rain is following across parts of the carolinas. the rain is going to be heavy all day. battering waves, a lot of wind. beach erosion and that sort of thing here. go forward on the track of this storm. continues to move northea
. government workers are not at work working on this. normally when there is a holiday during the week, they put this off. ashley: there was a lot of speculation, if it is delayed, how does that affect the election. this is a weather related things. melissa: commodities are still holding along. sandra smith is on the busy floor of the cme with the latest sandra: we will definitely stick with sandra today. taking a look at one room where there is a lot of trading today. corn, wheat, soybeans, the agricultural departments, meet markets, energy products are trading as well. oil, heating oil, also products are trading. gold, silver and copper. then of traders audio joining me now. what do you make of all of this? >> it is an extremely unusual day down here today. it is a unique event. we have certain quadrants which are closed. very little energy across the board. you are seeing it in the crude and local market. there is a limited participation. some people tend to look for a day like this for opportunity, i look at this as a favorite risk day. this gives you an unexpected opportunity to r
between the two campaigns and two visions. one says that government should get out of the way and let the private sector do its job. one, the president's campaign, said government's important. at a time like this, people are reminded as clearly and as graphically as they can be how important government is, how important it is that fema does its job and the state of new jersey and governor christie and his people do their job and that andrew cuomo and mayor bloomberg do their job. so government matters. this brings that home to people. >> what about the idea that people are just upset? you've got millions of people still without power. you've got, you know, all of this cleanup going on. isn't there some truth to the idea that people are just not happy right now and they go against the incumbent as a result of that, for no other reason just because mother name impacted their lives? >> the people are smarter than that. as long as they see the relief efforts are moving quickly and that the president or governors or mayors are doing everything they can, they're going to appreciate those ef
will be back in 30 seconds. >>> something we've seen before. a politician who gains coverage. senator mcgovern lost by a landslide to president nixon and years later mcgovern lost his bid for the presidency. just four years after dropping out of the 2008 presidential rate dennis kucinich lost his seat during the democratic primary after redistricting put him in a member versus member contest. the biggest one i remembered goes back to 1996 when bob doanan ran for president and was the surprise loser on election night in his old orange county district that everybody thought could not be lost. today we're looking at congresswoman michele bachmann. is it her turn? she is facing a tough re-election challenge less than a year after finishing last in the iowa republican caucus. joining me now luke russert. he just returned from minnesota's sixth district and because we were focused on this because we figured out nobody is spending more money on a re-election to a house race than michele bachmann. >> it really is amazing. for someone who was the tea party darling, the whole star of the movement, start
, if they're getting no for an answer somewhere in the federal government, they can call me personally. at the white house. >> that's what the president is doing to help americans try to recover from this storm. now, what's romney's response to the storm today? his team announced he was also canceling his campaign events, holding instead what they described as a storm relief event in ohio. but the event was held at the same location where campaign rally was supposed to be held. he was joined by the same musical guest scheduled at his campaign rally. and at this noncampaign event, "the new york times" said they played a, quote, glossy campaign video for mr. romney that described him as charismatic and authentic. and is it normal for people at a noncampaign storm relief event to carry t-shirts that attack the president? but this event turned awkward, too. governor romney's warning to slash fema so today he refused to answer questions about it. >> reporter: would you eliminate fema if you were president? would you eliminate fema if you were president? governor, would you eliminate fema if

government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming in from all over. exactly from 12 states. they are headed to new jersey to assist in repairs. the national guard is increasing its response to the storm. reinforcements were sent to new york and new jersey to double the recovery efforts. now, while people are picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, the presidential campaign is back in full swing. if you want to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing

everything in a razor tight race. the government reports america's unemployment rate rising in the month of october to 7.9%. 171,000 jobs added last month. that is far fewer than the 250,000 many economists say are needed each month to turn the economy around. so that is the big number we have. that's where we start. good morning. i'm bill hemmer. welcome here. morning, martha. martha: good morning bill. what a week. it is friday. welcome everybody, i'm martha maccallum. this jobs report today could be the freshest things people have in their mind in terms of a economic number when they head to the polls in a few days. this short shows it has been a very slow, sluggish recovery. the government reports real unemployment, this is the number we want to focus on, 14.6%. we say that for a good reason. that includes people that are underemployed, even people only worked one day, get counted in the underemployed, part time emed employed. some just have given up. bill: stuart varney, anchor fox business network. good morning to you. start with the more significant number you find there. what is
. the federal government took new action, though, today in the past several hours to get more fuel into the communities. with gas lines throughout the region stretching for miles, the department of homeland security has eased restrictions on foreign flag oil tankers. jim cantore has more for us on this problem. >> hey, tamron. this is what i would call an orderly gas line, even though it's packed, it's orderly he. people are lined up to each pump, and they filled the tanks with tangers that came in here. this is a nice supply of gas here at the vince lombardi truck stop. back towards the west, you can see here this gentleman, this police officer is actually directing traffic coming in from the exit into which line they should get in. as we show you where that line is, it travels all the way back up around to the turnpike. last night we understand this line was all the way out into the turnpike, which creates a dangerous situation there. so this is pretty good. you have about an hour and a half wait to the end of the line so you're able to get gas. there's no limits here on how much
. >> and the other thing you brought up, i read it in your report, do you think that the government should subsidize, how big a difference do you think it would make in terms of what people pay? that is the question they have. >> right, it would definitely drive the prices down. if you want to feed your family organic, it is very expensive. definitely out of the reach of low income people. but yet, a lot of us feel that nutritional foods should be easy and affordable to obtain. so if you're taking 20 billion a year and using it to subsidize corn, wheat and soy, that could cheap those things feet. if you take the subsidize, and more people could afford them. it just makes good food policy, i don't think people connect what they're eating, prices at the supermarket or at a farmer's market, the decisions that politicians are making. >> you said at the beginning, food is not a partisan issue. i agree with it, but looking at the rankings, they do seem to favor democrats just looking at them. why do you think that is? >> i don't know, that is not for me to figure out. but i think that you know, possibly,
